Hebrew media said that “Israel” last weekend received a letter from the International Criminal Court (ICC) regarding accusations of committing war crimes in the Palestinian territories.
The Hebrew “Channel 13” explained that “Israel” has a 30-day deadline to respond to the speech of the International Criminal Court.
It pointed out that the brief speech consisting of a page and a half presented the three main areas of investigation, which are the 2014 war, and the Israeli settlement policy, in addition to the marches on the Gaza border in 2018.
Earlier this month, the Prosecutor of the International Criminal Court, Fatou Bensouda, announced that it had opened a formal investigation into alleged crimes in the Palestinian territories.
A number of “Israeli” officials have told Channel 13 that they are concerned that the International Criminal Court may actually begin issuing arrest warrants against former Israeli military officials and officers in the coming months.
It is noteworthy that Palestine joined the International Criminal Court in 2015.
